This is a feature started on Breaking the Spine that puts the spotlight on upcoming books.
This week’s pick is:
Release date: May 26th 2015
Goodreads: In the two years since her father died, sixteen-year-old Eva has found comfort in reading romance novels—118 of them, to be exact—to dull the pain of her loss that’s still so present. Her romantic fantasies become a reality when she meets Will, who seems to truly understand Eva’s grief. Unfortunately, after Eva falls head-over-heels for him, he picks up and moves to California without any warning. Not wanting to lose the only person who has been able to pull her out of sadness—and, perhaps, her shot at real love—Eva and her best friend, Annie, concoct a plan to travel to the west coast to see Will again. As they road trip across America, Eva and Annie confront the complex truth about love.
Why I’m excited: I’ve had some good luck with road trips books. I always seem to enjoy them. I’m a little nervous about the love aspect of the story. Hopefully it doesn’t come across as Eva depending on his love to live. The friendship aspect I like already. A best friend who’ll jump in the car with you to drive across America just because it’s something you need to do? Yeah, I’ll read about that.
